Fat Yak Recipe Kit - ‘1/2 Yak’ Clone

This recipe is another Matilda Bay favourite of Aussie Brewmakers – the Fat Yak clone, or as we like to call it the ‘1/2 Yak’ as it is not quite as ‘hoppy’ as the commercial variant. This recipe is a great introduction to experimenting with hops and grains for the beginner or ‘tin kit’ brewer.
